The Production of Toffee & Caramels
Consistent flavour, colour and texture... the secret of good caramel is processing the ingredients to an emulsion and heating it such that its colour and flavour develop optimally. After careful emulsifying and heat treatment, the combination of sugars and (dry) milk components such as milk proteins, fat etc. give a product popular all over the world in diverse forms.
Depending on the ingredients used and the process parameters, the structure of the mass can be anything from 'sticky' toffee to very short 'fudge' and from low viscosity 'dipping' caramel to high viscosity depositing clusters. Flavour and colour are developed by the 'Maillard' reaction, where time and temperature play the leading roll. All these factors decide on the equipment Tanis Confectionery proposes to give you the product you require for your market.
